Paula Roy’s Favourite Foods Season 2, Episode 3 recipes

A fast and family-friendly weeknight meal!

I have to confess that when my kids were younger we ate a LOT of pretty boring pasta because it was the fastest weeknight meal I could whip up. The kids never seemed to get tired of it, but I sure did – I just wanted a few more dishes that featured some bright, fresh flavours and didn’t seem like kid food. For this episode of my cooking show on Rogers TV Ottawa, I’ve pulled together a family-friendly menu I wish I’d thought of years ago. You can prep most of it ahead of time making it super quick to serve up on a busy night. The extra good news is that everything is so delicious that you just might find yourself using some of these recipes for entertaining as well.

Spinach and raspberry salad with candied almonds

The bright, fresh tastes of spinach and raspberries are perfectly complemented by crunchy candied almonds and a tangy vinaigrette.

Shredded chicken with honey-garlic sauce

a delicious asian-inspired sauce makes this quick, easy chicken dish a family favourite

Salted caramel pots de crème

I like to call this dessert 'pudding for grownups' but the whole family will love it.

Three dishes that are perfect for a fast and fresh weeknight dinner
